Episode 23: Red Letters (part 7) Adultery and Divorce

The red letters turn scarlet this week - sex, adultery, lust, and divorce.  Do these ancient Jewish “sex laws” apply to our modern culture? Or is this just another example of fundamentalist legalism?  Here’s a hint: we don’t really know, but we hope you’ll join us in wrestling with the red letters on the latest #QuestioningChristianity podcast.

Rob refers to the book Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex is Affecting Our Children

Episode 22: Red Letters (part 6) Enemy Love

You’re right - legalistic Christians are the worst!  But Jesus isn't concerned about rules; he's in the life transformation business.  People who take his words seriously discover shalom...peace, healing, and wholeness. One of those shalom-instilling teachings of Jesus is “love your enemies.” It's harder than it sounds (and it sounds really hard!). Join us around the table on #QuestioningChristianity.

The Daily Office

The Daily Office


Here's a link to the daily devotional tool Rob mentioned in our last episode, The Daily Office by Mission St. Claire.  Each day provides prescribed scripture reading, songs, and prayers that can be used to help strengthen your spiritual muscles.  It's not to be used as a legalistic ritual.  Give it a try and let us know what you think.



Do you have suggestions for other spiritual formation tools?  Please write them in the comments below.

Episode 20: Red Letters (part 4) Fulfilling the Law

Jesus makes a disclaimer: "I haven't come to abolish the Law or the Prophets, but to fulfill them." The Law was supposed to protect justice, ensure mercy, and show the world God's character, but it deteriorated into a broken, abusive religious system that even "devours widows' houses." Jesus makes the law complete on the latest Questioning Christianity.

Episode 19: Red Letters (part 3) Salt and Light

Parents have dreams for their children. According to ancient Judaism, God has a dream for his children and the world he created. The dream is for the world to live in shalom and for human beings to flourish. So what do the metaphors of “salt” and “light” from Jesus’ teachings have to do with God’s dream? Listen to this episode to find out.
